Drew blood with the new setup this week. Took a doe about 80yds, hit exactly where I wanted. This scope is amazing.

Here's the setup.
Ruger American Predator in .308
Zeiss Conquest V4 4-16x
Seekins Precision Low 30mm Rings

Three more days in the gun deer season here in Wisconsin. We’re not real big into deer hunting but I got a little 6 pointer on opening morning and wife got a pretty nice 8 pointer about an hour later. We had about an inch of snow on opening weekend. It is only 12 degrees here now and no snow. So the deer hunting has slowed way down. Not many hunters going out.

I took this beautiful guy yesterday. First 10 point, so excited :D
I have a big 9 point and big 8 and plenty of smaller, but it was finally time to get the 10+ . I've been wanting one for several years.

Walked from the truck like I have many times before down a big clearcut hill, but went straight into the big timber this time instead of down a small road further away from main road where I usually enter the timber. Was walking very slowly and working my way up a ridge, glassing every few feet. I was into the trees maybe 100yds from where I entered and snuck up on him in his bed. He was facing directly away, never had a clue in the world I was there. He had a doe further up the ridge, didn't see her til after the shot. The buck fever was intense, was about 30 yd freehand shot. Bullet went where it was supposed to and where I wanted it to. This gun has been great, and the scope amazing. Very thankful.

Good luck to everyone still out there!

Muzzleloader elk starts next week, only about 4 days hunt for cows.
